Happy Star Wars Day!
As I write this post, it’s now quite late into Star Wars day for me here in the UK, however, it’s been a great one, probably my best yet and it will continue much into the weekend for me; lockdown is a great excuse for binging!
Let’s begin this post with a new artwork I’ve completed –
I recently undertook and completed this charcoal drawing to serve as a preliminary for a new oil painting, a May the Fourth special which also served as the subject for a live stream (more on that in a bit).
I’ve always had an odd obsession with Jawas and I’ll be doing some more Jawa based artworks in the future so this is just the beginning. In later piece I intend to put more emphasis on the landscape narrative whereas this piece is more of a character portrait.
I’ve toyed around with the idea of live streaming for quite some time now, I’ve also experimented with several platforms. For me the favourite in terms of simplicity and serving the purpose, as well as for accessibility is Instagram.
I started this today with my Jawas on Tatooine oil painting, which still isn’t finished and I’ll continue the stream tomorrow most likely. Times and dates will always be announced on Instagram and will mostly fall around 1pm BST whilst this lockdown is in place.
Also I’m planning a Jyn Erso charcoal portrait live art stream for some point this week!
